3 Reasons Why Maintaining WiredScore Certification is Imperative


3 / 17 / 2020


It’s imperative to think of WiredScore Certification as a journey rather than a destination.

If your outlook on WiredScore Certification is to contact WiredScore, conduct a building audit, receive a score and then not think of it again, you’re not receiving full value from WiredScore Certification. Maintaining WiredScore Certification beyond its initial 2-year period can make all the difference when it comes to continually positioning your assets as best-in-class and attractive to potential tenants.

Keep Up With Evolving Tech Trends

Technology doesn’t stand still and neither does WiredScore Certification. WiredScore’s experts are constantly examining and reexamining the WiredScore Certification scorecard to react to the latest trends in tech and connectivity, and some that will come in the future.  We do this to not only ensure WiredScore Certification’s credibility but to provide tenants and building owners with a blueprint to best-in-class connectivity and digital infrastructure.

For example, think of the emergence of the 5G network and its technology. Years ago, this wasn’t heavily considered in the WiredScore Certification scorecard; however, in its current iteration, credit is awarded to buildings that take steps to boost mobile reception for tenants. Specifically, points are awarded for a DAS (Distributed Antenna System), which will be paramount as the demand for 5G escalates.

Maintaining WiredScore Certification means ensuring your asset is prepared for the future of tech and tenant needs.

Marketability to Tenants

Maintaining WiredScore Certification means being able to continually brand and market a building as a best-in-class tech destination for blue chip tenants. Building owners have leveraged this opportunity through signage or a plaque on their building, through leasing brochures, a property website or social media post.

Maintaining a WiredScore Certification also opens up marketing and PR opportunities through improvement. After a building audit, our team of advisors will guide you through measures that can boost your score through enhancements to digital infrastructure and connectivity. If a building improves its WiredScore Certification (for example, from WiredScore Certified Silver to Gold) it presents a prime opportunity to publicize the positive news.

Continued Guidance

Tech and connectivity issues do not have a time frame to sprout up and go away. Questions regarding internet service going down, providers changing rates or enhanced cell phone reception will persist.

Maintaining WiredScore Certification means continued access to our team of advisors, who are available to provide specialized guidance on all things related to in-building tech. That means peace of mind to maintain day-to-day productivity while telecom and tech problems act as speed bumps rather than roadblocks.

Reaping the benefits of this aspect of WiredScore Certification can provide asset managers and property managers with a valuable safety net that, if removed, could make their jobs more difficult. Maintaining WiredScore Certification, and therefore, WiredScore’s consultation services is a benefit from the top-down.
